Name of the Project
La Plata gold/copper project.

Location
Ecuador.

Project Owner/s
Atico Mining.

Project Description
The project is a gold-rich volcanogenic massive sulphide deposit that was the subject of small-scale mining from 1975 to 1981.

The project has been identified by Ecuadorian President Guillermo Lasso as a strategic project and a component of the country’s reactivation plan. The project comprises a 900 t/d underground mining operation with state-of-the-art infrastructure, including the construction of a filtered tailings facility – a first of its kind in Ecuador. This technology, already used at Atico’s El Roble mine, in Colombia, allows for efficient use of water by significantly reducing water consumption by recirculating almost all the water needs of the processing plant.

The project also includes the upgrade of the access road, a 69 kV powerline and a flotation plant with its filtered tailing facilities.
